Re: Inspection Mirror x3 / Denatured Alcohol

Denatured alcohol is great for cleaning tools, but not great for putting in the damage as for one thing it softens pvb.

Re: Magnetic reaction force.

They used to do glass nails for holding loose windshields in with, I think they stopped selling those when the specialist hammer needed was hard to get hold of.

Magnetic reaction force.

If you come across a tight starbreak try placing a magnet up close to it a another or a piece of metal on the other side of the glass, this helps create a ground force that draws the resin away from the atmosphere into the deepest parts of the legs.

Re: Preferred vendor

There are a lot of uninsured vehicles out there in fact over they make up the majority of vehicles on the road, so chase the bigger market would be my suggestion. I cannot help you with the preferred vendor bit as I am not in the USA.

Re: Tent set up WIND

I used metal plates over the top of that flat bit on the bottom of the leg, then parked my car on top of it like you have. Only did a tent for a few weeks and found it very time consuming, fleets and dealers are a far better and reliable income 12 months of the year in my humble.

Re: Any suggestions- Drill?

Same as Brent here in that I can only see the small photo, but something does look odd about it, maybe partially filled before. I would certainly not be drilling that type of repair as drilling down into the cone would not get you anywhere. Flexing and making sure I used a UV shield would be of utmo...

Re: Star leg not filled

That needed flexing from outside, not inside, heat is an enemy as it causes the glass to expand making to leg close up and not allowing resin to flow. Did you polish until the polish had dried as this is when the shine appears.

Never cure until the repair is full is something I teach over here.

Re: ONE YEAR

I found adding long crack was counter productive, all it did was tell people not to bother having a small chip repaired until it became longer. I am very capable of doing long cracks and have taught many people over the years how to do them. Increasing sales in my humble is about getting away from a...
